Orthodontics/Orthodontology

There's nothing better than knowing you're responsible for the smile on someoness face. But feeling this satisfaction every day is entirely possible if you consider orthodontics/orthodontology as a major. Such specialists are dentists who primarily focus on treating and preventing dental irregularities. The program is designed to focus on the advanced study of growing dental structures for the correction of disproportionate and misalignments. Traumas and growth are usually caused by diseases, injuries, and even genetics. Thus, you will be studying everything there is to know about model analysis, malocclusion, craniofacial alignment, cephalometrics, space analysis, cleft lip and palate, design and fabrication of orthodontic appliances, and managing and planning treatments. Career opportunities will be plentiful. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the demand for orthodontists will increase by 16 percent between 2012 and 2022. But your success will entirely depend on your experience and skills. Take advantage of internships to get hands-on experience on the field. You'll need to go the extra mile to build a career for yourself.
